Dr. Anthony Trotta has studied public administration, public policy, and political science for over 30 years in pursuit of knowledge that would allow for him to better comprehend and appreciate the workings of governance.

His teaching and research interests include E-Governance, Public Policy, Political Theory and Public Budgeting. Although primarily serving in a teaching capacity at the university level since 2002, Anthony Trotta also has experience contributing to academic works. This includes serving in the academic journal manuscript review process and in a classroom textbook editorial review capacity. In addition, Anthony’s academic background is supplemented with real-world management experience in the public sector and the private sector. The past 30 years (and counting) serving as a student, teacher and practitioner of public administration, public policy and political science has provided him with an amalgamation of knowledge and insight which was used to complete his books on E-Governance with the Routledge /Taylor and Francis Group. He would like to thank the reader for taking the time to join him on this educational journey that has provided him the opportunity to continue the pursuit of his passion for better understanding modern governance.
